Part 3... is he going to have a shorter roof to deal with?

I think the 60 fury trim fills the gap?

Thanks for posting
Not sure why he is doing this, I would have thought a better body would have been the go
instead of killing the dodge (even though that was also my original plan with my cars)

Anyway, Interesting to watch

I think the roof will fit, but I think the 4 door sedan ant the coupe windscreens had a difference which may show itself down the track
of his build

the guy is in Alberta Canada and I don't think there is really a choice nor is he dumping 5k on a body. Its rare to see a 2 dr hardtop even in the states that is usable.

He picked up the dodge cheap(800$ i think) and i assume the fury even cheaper. I think they fix up cars and sell them and do body shop fixes.

The guy does amazing body work. He can pound out any dent and make the metal look perfect and paint.

He did this before with a 60's Ford, came out what appears perfect.

here he cut a 4 door 69 ford in half... insanity..

The donor car was an abandoned project (1960 Dodge Dart Pioneer 4 door sedan) that happened to run and drive (a little). Rust free body and frame, but incomplete - couldn't have prayed for a better donor, especially in Canada.

Biggest remaining issue seems to be a possible rear passenger quarter replacement - not only for the rust out, but also a rotten repair job near the fin at one time.

Despite the unibody construction, was there still any additional rigidity installed for hardtops over sedans?

Watching the video, it was just the door post in the middle, so no didn't appear to be any. This would be scarier with a framed car I think. the unibody helped keep it in shape I think.

I think he needs to use a come along on the tail fin(make a big adapter) and use a lot of work to fix that quarter, finding another donor in Canada would be an insane task I think.

Part 5 is up already - mating the drip rails are done and, at the end for a little bit of a cliffhanger to the next episode, it looks like he's picked up a 1960 Plymouth 4 door hardtop, possibly for the quarters as well as the passenger fin. What you see in the video thumbnail are the remains of the '60 Dodge on what's left of the '60 Plymouth lower unibody. Yeah, it sagged in half within a matter of months:

Now, after the solid and straight Dart a good Fury ht (!!!) is cut into pieces. I'm confident they will find more good restorable cars to cut in pieces and rid whole Canada of the last good restorable FL cars that survived almost 60 years to create a single bondo bomb.
BTW, that rain gutter could have been made from scratch by any decent body man. I use to like them, but now... what a bunch of ******

Have you watched all 6 installments? *Any* of the installments?

The 1960 Dodge Dart Pioneer 4-door sedan was an incomplete, abandoned project that's largely rust free in the spots needed.

Plus, that 1960 Plymouth Fury 4-door hardtop wasn't looking too awful steady, anyways - who's to say it didn't have a rotten frame?

And, had you been watching "coldwarmotors" with any regularity, you'd have known that the guy wants nothing to do with bondo in any aspect. Hell, didn't you see what kind of shape the passenger rear quarter of the 2-door hardtop was in? It's because the thing from the beltline down was rotten due to a s#!t collision repair some time in its life that was infested with bondo.

Incase you haven't checked it out, here's the video from the day he brought that 1960 Dodge home - see and judge for yourself whether or not it was worth saving as its own project, I guess:

it wasn't worth saving. If everyone wanted a bunch of 4 door sedan that needed tons of work they would be saving them. I would rather see that 2 door ht fury restored over 2 trashed sedans.

Honestly these sedans are dirt cheap, start saving them if they are worth it but they arent... plain and simple math.

I like sedans but that 60 dodge was a sorry restoration. Everyday these cars are getting scrapped as the bottom of the barrell gets scraped more and more... Save what you can

Crappy 4 door dodge sedan restoration

What was I thinking?

http://forwardlook.net/forums/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=38117&post... find&highlightmode=1#M534599

I am sort of enjoying watching this , but he has now destroyed both the cars of this era that I have
owned to build a car (as in this particular car) that if I ever bought it would be at the least, disappointed that I
bought a chopped up piece of rubbish.

The rear panel on my Plymouth was as bad, if not worse than the one on that 2 door

I wish he would show more working and less talking about stuff and his dog

Why did you sell the Phoenix? Your like 7 years into it?

Facts are simple, coupes are worth more than sedans, that doesn't mean sedans cant be nice rides, sportier cars are just worth more and typically rarer.

Phoenix was sold because it was done I bought it to use for the Plymouth, but it was saveable (just).

I was going to keep it until the Plymouth or buick was done, but I had a buyer that really wanted it, so I let it go and bought my Noddy car

I've disagreed with Sid in the past but I agree with him

Guy does excellent work and have watched his channel for years, he's an excellent tradesman no doubt
These being the rare birds they are, why destroy more of them then you have to?

No it's not my car, nor any of my business, but 3 gallons of bondo and a 60 dollar gallon of straight enamel
and any regular person couldn't tell the difference from a frame off car and a butchered bondo bucket.
I've bought some hacked up work, and done a lot of it myself (who hasn't??) but I've never been dishonest
about it. 300 dollars and 3 weeks to keep a car out of the scrapper for even one year will increase the likelihood
of longterm survival. You never know what you have until the paint is off. Taken someone did the best
they could and did good prep, you will never know what's under there. My car is all weather and if my buggered
work can take the abuse on gravel roads and slinging the salt and snow, a garage queen will last as long as you
own it. Probably then some.

The "more doors are cool" appeal doesn't seem to have caught on here as much as it has in other places. The
two doors and verts are valuable now, but let's be honest. In 20-30 years, when the last generation that really
remembers seeing these cars on the road is gone, what then? The prices have gone insane in the past decade
(was it 300k for that 58 NY vert?), but I don't see it staying. Young kids don't like cars, and the one that do, don't
really give a darn about American iron. Those who like it are drawn to muscle cars or tri fives. A good part of it is
they have never seen one of these.

I say to hell with it and dough it up. They make no impression sitting in a garage. The more people that see them
and notice them, if just one person is compelled enough to get one, there's one more that won't be lost. I'm just
a little lost as to why he cut up two half decent cars being as good at fabrication and bodywork as he is

To reiterate, it doesn't really matter, but those are my unrequested 2c

I watched part of the part 2 and I can concur the ass end of the '60 Fury Hard Top is a bitch to say the least. I got 2 guys from a body here to come take a look at mine to see what they would charge. They were honest in saying they were basically not skilled enough to take it on. As to the molding around the roof line sides it truly is a s**t pile mess of trim that all inter fit to make it look and seal clean. The water retention trim shows what the worst is flat out true. At any rate I remember a few years ago a beauty of a, my dream car, went across and only fetched $40,000.00. It was a convertable '60 Fury 2dr with a wicked 426 hemi and a 4 speed and man it looked great, smooth, clean lines and wicked. To say they are rising in value I am not sure. But I do know a running and driving, needing a lot of work will bring what $2-4,000.00? If you can find a parts car you can use for what you need how much would you pay? I would love to give maybe $4-600.00 for one near me, transort cost, I'd die to have that deal. Where I have a problem with is re-bodying a car. Once that is done the finished project is not longer as it started life. If you take a car and donor and the only thing left original is the roof and firewall that is not the car that came off the assembly line. But if you got the will, means and know how to do it your self by all means have fun. If you pay someone to restore is one thing, to pay somone to build what you want is exactly that. Wish I had money to do either rather over a few years to get it done.

Part 8 is live at last.

A little door panel steaming and various & sundry consisting of brake work, carb work and 70's cruise control removal - and another bumper snippet of "My Classic Tire" featuring an out-of-round 14" bias ply from the late 1960's currently used as one of the Fury's rollers. And the revelation that speaker grilles on the 1960 Plymouth dash were made largely of petrified fly piss:

I couldn't tell you myself - all I know is it took me about 5 good minutes to pick myself up off the floor after Scott said that.

Hope he keeps the paint colors original - I've always had a soft spot for metallic blue.

Yeah, he wants to save and keep the original door panel upholstery - don't know if he's making new backing for them or not.

I think this is very entertaining myself. These guys have some crazy mad skills. The only thing I have to ask why is it that they just didn't leave the dodge alone and use the Fury 4dr HTP donor body instead? Wouldn't that have been easier than than using the dodge???

You mean the ht? Definitely savable. The rear was good including the trunk sealing edge (thats why he cut it off) and my experience tells me, if there is a 60 Plymouth with a good rear end the rest can't be worse. The outer sheet metal skin is all that matters. What a needless waste.

Seeing as how the Dodge 4dr was a sedan and the Plymouth 4dr was a hardtop, they'd have to do the same type of lower body swap anyways - maybe even more difficult to do with the 4dr hardtop with the b-pillar and everything.

What's consistently being forgotten/overlooked is that the Dodge was an abandoned, incomplete project with a V-8 that ran and drove a little.

get to restoring 4 doors then :)  otherwise it would have continued to rot into the ground like many sedans are doing everyday.

It had the better potential of being restored but it was a stripped 4d ht savoy shell similar to the dodge and needed alot of work but the bottom was also rotted...  only worth maybe 1000$ as it was. no trim, emblems or anything he said in the one reply in the video.  Interior was gone or shot since he didnt use any of it and used what he could from the dodge.

You need to get to saving these stripped 4 doors  :)    If you don't start at least buying all these great savable 4 door car i suggest you step up :)  Oh wait...

So its better to scrap the two door complete fury than a 4 door savoy(prob no title either) mostly rotted empty shell and a 4 door dodge incompete project?

 Here is even some 2 door sedans you can save: both for sale right now

2700$ for one, 15k for the other...

the 15k one:

1960 Plymouth savoy, 4-speed 440ci motor, runs good has brakes, cool car!--- air conditioning---, interior is re done, no rust, paint is decent, tires and wheels are in good shape, new exhaust, new battery, new centerforce clutch, scatter-shield

the 2700$ one.

It has a 170 ci slant 6 with a push button automatic transmission. The floor boards have several rusted through places. I have a used replacement windshield and tail light lens that is not cracked.

Ill almost guarantee the slant 6 is locked up with the sheer amount of exposure the engine bay has. 

We talk about actual cost to restore these cars and with time and effort it can be low (What Cold War Motors does, he restores cars on nearly nothing).  But how much time is involved.  If your retired and tinkering thats fine, but a year of my life is certainly worth more than a couple thousand dollars.  Thats what your typically talking about when you say we should save these rusted out stripped sedans.

I must have missed the episode where they probed the the floorboards on the savoy. My thoughts are that even if they had to do floorboards on the savoy that it would easier than grafting the entire back half onto the dodge?

I recently picked up a rock solid 61 savoy 4dr and these Cold War vids got me thinking about my worst 61 Fury and what can be done. I don't have nearly the skills required to do something like this or I might consider it.

I'm interested in the end results for this project. It looks like it turn out well so far.

I rescued a 67 coronet 2dr post deluxe that was on the way to the scrap yard. Too rusty and parted to restore. All the 2dr post parts were still there. I also rescued a solid complete 67 belvedere 4dr that had some underneath forklift damage. I going to attempt with some help from a skilled freind who builds tri 5 Chevy 4drs into 2drs. My end goal will be to build a vintage drag car look for as little money as possible using mainly spare parts I have available to me.
I'm going to nickname the car SPARE PARTS. I'm going to use a already running 67 imperial 440, used headers,wiend intake, rebuilt Holley carbs, 3.55 sure grip and anything else I can find around the yard.

mikes2nd - 2019-01-12 8:59 AM The 4d Plymouth was rotted out also. The Dodge was the only good car underneath.
You mean the ht? Definitely savable. The rear was good including the trunk sealing edge (thats why he cut it off) and my experience tells me, if there is a 60 Plymouth with a good rear end the rest can't be worse. The outer sheet metal skin is all that matters. What a needless waste.

get to restoring 4 doors then :)  otherwise it would have continued to rot into the ground like many sedans are doing everyday.

It had the better potential of being restored but it was a stripped 4d ht savoy shell similar to the dodge and needed alot of work but the bottom was also rotted...  only worth maybe 1000$ as it was. no trim, emblems or anything he said in the one reply in the video.  Interior was gone or shot since he didnt use any of it and used what he could from the dodge.

You need to get to saving these stripped 4 doors  :)    If you don't start at least buying all these great savable 4 door car i suggest you step up :



Sure, if you pay the costs of importing a non runner and import charges I'll. Countless times some a**hole parts guys have beat me trying to save a 4d HT. One a complete, rustfree seafoam colored golden commando. That a**hole parted it out and cut it in pieces.

I am restoring a 4 d. and that is even a sedan. I can't save them all from this side of the pond. There are car guys and there are car-show guys. I personally do not care what they are worth or if they are "in" or considered "cool" or if I can get money out of them. I love all FL cars. And a needless destruction remains a needless destruction. Period.

I would say he seems to be a FWL fan, a huge one in fact.

but you admit this is about money... because not many of us don't have unlimited time, money and storage... to save 4 door sedans. Because a trashed/rotted one simply isn't worth it in most peoples opinion when a coupe is more desirable and worth more and there are those to save also(by 99% of the people). 57 Chevys 4ds are starting to be worth a little more but most are still being scrapped. I just saw one locally go for 4500$ a good 4 door 57 chevy sedan runner.

This is exactly his point though, you can spend 1000's of hours fixing up a rusty 4 door sedan and even a 4 dr hardtop and then even more on a 2 door hardtop. He doesn't have the time or money to fix those.

that makes scraping that car hardly needless. It was very much needed and will save other cars even. These things aren't puppies or pokemon they are huge time and money sucks

No, it is not about money. I simply can't afford it as my bank account is drained. I "wasted" money before just to safe a car. Once sold a car for less so a sofa ***** does not get it.

You are missing the point. I wouldn't have said a thing if he only used one car. The ht would have gotten him all he needed. The skin is all that matters. You don't even have to be a decent body man, as someone here said he is.
I prefer 2 d ht's over 4 doors too but wouldn't waste more than needed to fix one. The thing is, this stunt wasn't done to save a car I fear, but all for publicity. Someone obviously stored the 4 d ht, that is btw much rarer than the 2 door, otherwise it wouldn't have survived like that, so it probably wouldn't have continued to rot in the ground as you claimed. It survived almost 60 years and now that! It is a shame.

you just said you cant afford to save all the 4 doors so its about money.


Maybe you need to go back, he got the not rare at all 4 door sedan at an auction, the guy gave up trying to sell it for anywher near the time he had in it and took a huge beating and wasted probably tons of money and alot of his time only to abandon the 4 door dodge to an auction. go watch the video. The guy probably found a 4 door dodge already done for what he would probably have in Chrome, so he bailed on it to an auction. Scott said the body work all had to be redone, because it was garbage so yes even your precious 4 door dodge stripper was destined to the trash. So you had 3 cars all destined for the trash... he saved one car and with the extra parts maybe 2?

This isnt a stunt, this was done to save a 2 door ht fury, much more rare than a 4 door sedan dodge.

Maybe you should read my message? I clearly said 4d. HT (HARDTOP) and a 4 d. HT Fury is much rarer than a coupe. Fact. That said I consider all FL cars rare by 2019. And of course, if I would start such a stupid thing for publicity that requires more cars to cut up than needed, I'd claim all these cars headed to the crusher. Fact is, they are crushed now and for some reason they are reluctant to start the actual body work on the cobbled together car. They should spend less time filming that dog. Again, a needless destruction of either a rust free 60 Dart or a nice very rare 60 Fury 4 door HARDTOP.

Much better than the cars I'm restoring and easily saveable, not for a lazy ***** of course. As I said, if the rear is nice, and it was, the rest can't be worse, unless it was hit in front.

yes your correct, i would bet all three of the cars he picked up were going to the crusher...  certainly the two furys were. Obviously the 60 dart was only worth 800$ on the open market more than likely for parts/scrap also, a running and driving car...

Without a title, a vin, engine, interior and even the badging/trim a junked 4 door ht plymouth fury is just a junked 4 door ht "plymouth"...

18,000 produced vs 9000 produced... not that much rarer

 he said the 60 fury 4d ht quarter donor car had been stripped multiple times for restorations, zero interior, rusted through all over the bottom, no running gear... when he took the quarter off the bottoms were all gone and it fell off the wheel wells.

Yes, sure all rotted out, only the parts that always rust away first on these cars, like rear quarters and rain gutter survived in nice condition. A miracle, and what a fortunate coincidence.

Just checked the videos, for some reason he too no pictures from the "rotted out" hardtop. All I see is a pristine rear and door.... At least I coudn't find one, huge gap between #5 to #6.

No, not much, only half of the 2 door ht production Not to mention that these cars survived in fewer numbers because they are "only" 4 doors...

I think you guys need to calm down, everyone here has done their fair share saving cars, no need to prove it or out do each other. I also think The Cold War Motors guys have probably saved more cars than all of us combined, but the reality is that less popular and/or valuable cars get used to save the more desirable ones, it's pure economics. Could he have hand crafted all of the patch panels he needed, possibly, but for $800 is was all done already. He will most likely sit on the remaining parts until he needs them or sell them someone who does.

Sid, if I was you I'd be in touch with him for any remaining sheet metal he has so you can finish your '61.

My guess is, if he is really into FL he visits this site too, so I do no think that would work for me also, I refuse to support (knowingly) any butchering of restorable FL cars, for greed or publicity.
I'm a bodyman and can fabricate most, or all, of the parts myself, no need to destroy any more cars. I wish these cars will finally receive the appreciation they deserve.

I still have the remains of my chopped up '56 Imperial coupe that I used for parts, so I'm guilty too. I won't crush it though, I'll keep it forever or help another in need. No shame in getting parts so long as there isn't any waste.

he jokes he runs the "poly talk" show... so I think he would claim he is in the FL nerd club

Hah butcher... The guy has save tons of 4 door sedans... which would be ground up in tiny little pieces. He has a ton of sedan cars, he trades anything he gets usually for old sedans.

So I guess a FL butcher is better than a FL Crusher... he's normally operating on a nearly zero budget on cars, he trades some 80's junk he has for a kind of complete 50's sedan.
